German Wheat and Rye Beer
About German Wheat and Rye Beer
German Wheat and Rye beers are light to dark copper in color. They tend to express an initial malt sweetness that gives way to a more grainy character of wheat or rye. Depending on the style, there may be fruity aromas of banana and clove. Beers of this kind are medium-bodied with a lot of carbonation. Slight hoppiness often produces a tart aftertaste.
